Then we rode buses on the road following  the 1937 Guadalajara battlefield to a hill top overlooking the town of Brihuega in the fog. After lunch with the Mayor, sun appeared and we headed to Fuencarral Cemetery. A new panel explaining the memorials and plaques was unveiled there.

The last stop of the day was at the University City in Madrid to visit the memorial of the 75th anniversary of the IB.
